INVESTMENT FOR THERAPY SERVICES
I am an out of network provider and do not accept insurance at this time. I am able to provide a “Superbill” for clients to submit to their insurance for potential reimbursement. I recommend that you contact your insurance provider prior to participation in services to see if you are eligible for reimbursement.
Paying out of pocket for therapy rather than using insurance benefits can be advantageous for several reasons:
1. In order to bill insurance, I must give you a mental health diagnosis after the first session. If your symptoms do not fit the severity of a mental health diagnosis, I must give you one anyway. For youth seeking military service in adulthood, this could pose a barrier to enlisting.
2. Insurance determines the length of each session (45-50 minutes) and how many sessions we can meet. Each person is unique and requires a tailored treatment plan and insurance makes that more challenging.
3. Many insurance plans only allow face to face sessions usually one time per week. I often provide teletherapy via the phone or videoconferencing when clients are unable to come into my office for any reason. Stressors or crisis’ do not always happen on a preset timetable and having the flexibility to schedule sessions when, how often and from where you want is important.
